Why we love iron front doors!

We love iron front doors because of the strength and durability of the material. Not to mention, the beautifully sleek look they have! Iron front doors are perfect for finishing off a modern renovation or contemporary new construction home.

In terms of materials for a front door, iron is one of the most resilient and durable materials out there, making it the perfect choice for many homes.

How to use iron front doors 

Using iron front doors is quite straightforward! 

Instead of choosing a wooden front door, consider using one made from iron instead. You could choose one that has an iron frame and lining but is clad in timber so you benefit from the durability of iron yet have a classic timber look.

If you have interconnecting spaces within your house, choose iron framed internal doors to bring the finish inside. This helps to create a cohesive home design.

What to watch out for with iron front doors

The main consideration to take into account when thinking of using an iron front door for your home is the cost involved. Iron front doors are notoriously expensive. They hardly require any maintenance though, so the high initial cost can be offset.

Another aspect to consider is the weight of iron front doors. They are extremely heavy, and can therefore be difficult to move, and install. Iron front doors will require a team of specialists to install them to avoid any damage.

Ways to make iron front doors last in your home

Iron front doors can last a lifetime!

The key to ensuring your iron front door lasts is to choose a color that you love, and works with your home’s overall design and architecture. Many homeowners love to use the same finish on their windows and front door to create a balanced and cohesive look to the outside of the house.

It’s important to choose an iron front door from a reputable company with good reviews and a long warranty. This will give you the assurance of a good quality product and service.
